Stable isotopes measured on Miocene benthic foraminifera from ODP sites 202-1237 and 184-1146, supplement to: Holbourn, Ann; Kuhnt, Wolfgang; Schulz, Michael; Flores, José-Abel; Andersen, Nils (2007): Orbitally-paced climate evolution during the middle Miocene “Monterey” carbon-isotope excursion.

One of the most enigmatic features of Cenozoic long-term climate evolution is the long-lasting positive carbon-isotope excursion or “Monterey Excursion”, which started during a period of global warmth after 16.9 Ma and ended at not, vert, similar 13.5 Ma, approximately 400 kyr after major expansion of the Antarctic ice-sheet. We present high-resolution (1-9 kyr) astronomically-tuned climate proxy records in two complete sedimentary successions from the northwestern and southeastern Pacific (ODP Sites 1146 and 1237), which...
